There is just as much assessment of understanding to be done from a creative writing assignment about a text as there is in a traditional analytical assignment. This creative writing letter asks students to take on the persona of one of the soldiers (or other characters) in The Things They Carried and write a letter back home about their time in Vietnam. Writing from the point-of-view of one of the soldiers requires an intimate analytical knowledge of their character, and the assignment requires the student to close read in order to write.
Includes a very simple rubric and an alternate dialogue version of the assignment.
